Chelsea ready to end Drinkwater's Blues stay

  Chelsea ready to end Drinkwater's Blues stay Chelsea are reportedly interested in cutting their losses and selling Danny Drinkwater, according to the Mirror. The Blues are ready to get rid of the midfielder only a year after signing the midfielder from Leicester City for over £30 million. The midfielder has struggled to get game time at Stamford Bridge, only making five Premier League starts for Chelsea. The midfielder has seen his England World Cup chances completely go, with Drinkwater not even a backup player for Gareth Southgate’s side in Russia. The 28-year-old could raise some cash for Chelsea to buy other transfer targets, including Jean Michael Seri, with the Blues looking to replace Drinkwater with the Nice star. Drinkwater will move on without winning anything with the Blues, after winning the Premier League title with Leicester City in 2016. Drinkwater moved to Chelsea last Summer for over £30 million but failed to make an impact in the first team.

With the World Cup 2018 about to get underway, there will be plenty of Chelsea players aiming for glory in Russia for their respective countries.

It’s fair to say that there is a real possibility that one of the Stamford Bridge stars will end the tournament as a World Cup winner, following in the footsteps of André Schürrle, who won the tournament with Germany as a Chelsea player back in 2014.

Even though there quite of few Chelsea players who missed out on making their nation’s 23-man squad, including Spain’s Cesc Fàbregas, Marcos Alonso, Pedro and Álvaro Morata, there are still fourteen Chelsea players who made the plane to Russia.

Chelsea reportedly still keen on deal for Aleksandr Golovin

  Chelsea reportedly still keen on deal for Aleksandr Golovin Chelsea are reportedly still keen on a summer deal for CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin. The young playmaker enjoyed an impressive season in his homeland of Russia and has attracted interest from a host of top clubs across Europe, including Chelsea. For months, reports linking Golovin with a move to Stamford Bridge had quietened down but according to fresh claims from Tuttosport, as cited by Calciomercato, the Blues remain out to secure the player. Golovin, who is a key player for Russia in their bid to progress in this summer’s World Cup, impressed throughout last season because of his creativity and ability to influence games in the final third. CSKA want to keep hold of their prized asset but if reports are to be believed, they will be willing to sanction a sale if their valuation of €25 million is met. Also, it’s claimed that the Russian giants are insisting on a 25% sell-on clause in any deal for Golovin. Although, if the promising midfielder goes on to enjoy an impressive tournament this summer, CSKA could see fit to demand a higher fee for their star man. Chelsea are not alone in their interest in the player, however. According to the claims from Tuttosport, Arsenal and Juventus are also keen on a summer deal.

Barcelona join the race to sign Chelsea target Aleksandr Golovin .
Barcelona have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Aleksandr Golovin, according to reports. Golovin looks set to leave CSKA Moscow this summer, with a number of clubs interested in him and if his performances at the World Cup are anything to go by, it’s easy to see why he’s a man in demand. The 22-year-old has been one of Russia’s standout players as they’ve won two games, securing their place in the last 16 with one match still to play. Chelsea have been long-time admirers of the midfielder and are constantly being linked with a post-World Cup move for him. However, Barcelona are now said to be interested in signing the Russian international, which could throw a spanner in the works. Arsenal are also reportedly keen to sign Golovin, and will hope that if the player prefers to move to England, the instability at Stamford Bridge will lead to the Blues stalling on any potential deals, thus giving them a chance to swoop in early.
